Usuthu out to spoil Chiefs' jol

AmaZulu are hell bent on spoiling Kaizer Chiefs' party tonight, according to Philani Mabaso, the tough-talking Usuthu publicist.

Mabaso made their intentions of beating Amakhosi clear to Sowetan yesterday.

Usuthu meet Amakhosi, the new Telkom Knockout kings, in an Absa Premiership clash at Durban's Kings Park Stadium at 7.30pm.

Mabaso went on to stress that there was nothing special about their clash tonight and that they would treat it like any other encounter.

But he was quick to admit that it will not be easy against Chiefs who go into this match with renewed gusto after been crowned the Knockout champs on Saturday.

"Chiefs have their fair share of quality players and we have ours and we will compete with them in all departments for 90 minutes," Mabaso told Sowetan yesterday.

Mabaso was also not moved by the prospect of facing Chiefs with their in-form goalkeeper Itumeleng Khune, the hero of Saturday's penalty shootout.

The Usuthu public relations officer said the match could not have come at the better time after they had reinforced their midfield with former Benoni Premier United midfielder Thabo Mabaso.

The player was signed yesterday and has been described as fit to play today.

He is capable of adding impetus in this department where the gifted Bafo Biyela, John "Shoes" Moshoeu and Mohammed-Awal Issah operate.

Amakhosi will be without their midfield genius Tinashe Nengomasha, who is suspended.

Forward Shaun Bartlett and midfielder Thabo Mooki will also miss the tie because of injuries.

AmaZulu strikers Dennis Lota and Dumisani Ngwenya will likely find it hard to penetrate the Chiefs rearguard that will be marshalled by Derrick Spencer, who had a storming game against Mamelodi Sundowns in the final last Saturday.

Thebe "Selepe" Mohatle, Chiefs' spokesman, said yesterday: "Our celebrations for winning the cup are over and we are looking forward to our league matches, starting with the one against AmaZulu. Our ultimate goal is to win the league."
